Design Competition: Open Design Italia
Description: Open Design Italia is an international contest-exhibition-market exploring the field of self-production and allowing selected designers to exhibit and sell their objects directly and with no mediation. The main aim is to promote new ways to approach design which combine creating, thinking and designing – with producing. Since 2010, OpenDesignItalia has served to promote the collaboration between local designers, companies and makers, thus favouring the creation of networks among different subjects in the supply chain and enhancing the sustainability in the production process.
Joerg Suermann, CEO of DMY, will be among this year’s jury members of Open Design Italia. The jury will grant three awards and special mentions among all exhibited projects.
The third edition of Open Design Italia 2012 will be held in Venice in the area occupied by Magazzini Ligabue. The event is scheduled on November 23-25 as part of the 2012 edition of Venezia2019-European Culture Forum. Curators of the initiative are Elena Santi, architect and founder of Open Design Italia, Laura Succini, architect, and Alan D’Incà.
Deadline: 24th July to 25th September 2012
